      So, what is your favorite type?

        I don’t have a favorite type
        My favorite thing to do though is actually playing the game instead of inventing these worthless scenarios about types that don’t actually exist in the game to pretend I’m smart.

        According to the people in this thread Steel is apparently the best type in the game, but if that is the case, why are Ghost, Water, Fire, Grass, and Fairy all more common tera types for top level players to choose than it? Clearly if Steel is the best type everyone would just want to use Tera Steel, right? It’s almost as if ranking “best type” is literally worthless and doesn’t mean anything.

        >the full game
        /vg/c is a tiny tiny tiny niche fraction of "the full game". only 1% of pokemon are used in /vg/c and only 0.00000000000000000000001% of pokemon players ever participate in a /vg/c..

        What is it with campaignshitters assuming vgc is the only format that exists?

          You don't like theorycrafting? It's a good idea to find what can be broken before it exists

      This. Would also add the types it are weak to while common can easily be circumvented by pairing it with another type. Steel is hardly ever a detriment to the type it is paired up with, save maybe Aggron with rock but that is more a testament to how poor of a type rock is as given a choice any player would prefer it being mono-steel. Also steel offensively hits most of the game neutrally and hits the ever present fairies super effectively.

        Yes, when you ask yourself what would be the best dual type for any given type most of the time it will be steel.

          Unsurprisingly it's just Steel/Fairy.

            Steel/Flying is better because of the Ground immunity. Steel/Fairy being the “best” type came from an old gamefaqs post from 2013 or so that was rating types exclusively defensively, based on number of resistances/immunities rather than the quality of those resistances. The same post labeled Steel/Ice as a better defensive typing than Ground/Dragon off of that criteria.

    Resist/immune 2/3 of the types in the game.
    Most of them have a high defense.
    Beat the strongest types in the game.

      There's more to the full game than typings.
      This thread, however, is not about the full game but purely about typings in a ceteris paribus situation.
      This should not be difficult for you to understand, but alas, somehow it eludes you. I recommend you stop taking estrogen.

      Why do you think those are the most common offensive types, dumbass? I'll give you a clue - they sure weren't in Gen 1.

      Anon, it’s weak to the most common offensive types BECAUSE those types became common to counter it (besides Ground which was already good).

    Its considered the best because it forms the entire type chart around it.
    Fire and Fighting went from dogshit offensive types to nearly mandatory.
    Ice, Psychic, and Normal used to be best offensive types and range from good at very best to bad.

      Psychic got fricked for multiple reasons
      >still only super effective on two types
      >Dark became a new weakness
      >Ghost and Bug moves with good base power became much more widespread
      Steel resisting it is just the cherry on top
